NO SMOKING !!!!!

10 06 2010

I loved JAPAN for so many reasons. One reason that will alway remain in my mind as a good memory of their culture is:

Japanese do not smoke so often!!!

If i had counted the people I see smoking everyday, I am sure it would have been less than the number I can find in less than an hour in Dubai; specially in colleges -unfortunately.

In Japan, people are not allowed to smoke in public or indoor places. Even outdoor, they are restricted to special places, so others will not be bothered.

This is Waseda University’s Campus: A Non Smoking Campus!

In big intersections, and some shopping centers or subway stations, there is a smoking area like these:

Worth to mention, the cities were so clean. Though there was no trash can on the streets, I did not find a single trash left on the ground. Next to each convenience stores or vending machine there is trashcan with separate places for cans, bottles, and plastics. So, no trash on the ground!
